to make up that revenue mr. romney has said he wants to clear out the underbrush of deductions and loopholes but has not specified how he would do it. >> governor romney has made it plain. first of all, he doesn't want tax cuts for the rich. he's proposing lowering the top marginal rate to 28% obama's own commission recommended cutting it to 24%. so mitt romney's saying, i'm coming in 4% higher than obama's own commission. and by the way, obama's commission by getting rid of loopholes raised a trillion dollars in revenue. it didn't cut revenue at all. it rsed revenue while cutting the rates more than mitt romney wants to cut the rates. now how is that a $5 trillion hole? >> governor strickland? >> hey, chris, can i talk just for a moment. >> as long as it is just for a moment. >> he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan. he says it's going to be revenue neutral because he's going to offset it by getting rid of loopholes. the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. you know, the tax deductions where the real money is, chris, is th

: and both of you-- time out ladies, let me put this question out to both of you. since mr. romney is expected to attack the president on economy, and foreign policy and so far we have not seen what he will do for a second term. so, what do you anticipate the president will have to do, jehmu, in order to get ahead of this foreign policy gap that's going on right now in the wake of the death of four great americans. i don't know, kelly, i disagree with you. we haven't seen from president obama what his next four years would be, we have not seen anything from governor romney on what his business-- his presidency would look like, all he's done is attack the-- >> during the debate. >> what he will do during the debate i think is remind the american people of his record on counterterrorism, and that is not something that governor romney is going to be able to poke any holes in, and i think he will also remind the american people of when it comes to the economy, that it's the turn around is going to take time. >> oh. >> and you've seen president clinton talk about why it took eight years
. rasmussen shows how many people are for the president and how many for mr. mitt romney . rasmussen poll was accurate in 2004 and 8 getting the results according to the track being poll. 43 percent said they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former

to draw them into my campaign. >> but last night, a complete about face. now mr. romney is denouncing those remarks. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer questions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. and in this case i said something that is just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it will be about helping the 100%. >> cnn political editor paul steinhauser is here. we also have seen romney embrace the same massachusetts health care reforms he's previously shunned and he's doing that before some conservative audiences. is he simply just trying to move to the middle with just 32 days before the election? >> yeah, and maybe people are saying the same thing about the debate performance from mitt romney the other night in denver, that his position seemed to be shifting a little bit. on this, on the specific comment you ju
hit pretty hard on the $5 trillion, the big amount mr. romney kept getting thing done by president obama, his president right saying mitt romney's numbers do not add up? >> no, he was not right. what romney is proposing is lowering tax rates, getting people back to work to generate tax revenues. he never said that taxes on the rich would make up for the deficit. president obama kept saying that. obviously he did not get how that works. tracy: listen to the sound bite from last night, mitt romney talking about the off shoring of businesses and tax businesses. >> to get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? i have been in business 25 years. i have no idea what you are talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea you get a break for sending jobs overseas is simply not the case. tracy: christian, was governor romney right on that point? >> no, he was actually wrong. earnings that do not subject to income tax money that is held offshore in effect incentivizing companies to have offshore jobs and keep the money outside the united states. i don't know where the gov
contrast, and i think mr. rency there was right. i mean, governor romney is talking about greater tax cuts and hoping that this time instead of growing deficits is grows jobs, and president obama's talking about a more balanced approach in line with the sort of policy choices and mix of investments and also balanced approaches that -- neil: but, governor, what did you make of the argument that governor romney used? mr. president, if you were for extending all the bush rates a couple years ago, and arguably the gdp was stronger than it was and is now, and you argue that now and then was not the time to do it? then he did catch the president in a, what the, you know what. >> i think the president, the situation he found himself in was he did not want to see taxes go up on people making less than $250,000 a year. he wanted to see and consistency said he would like to continue that level of taxation on people earning less than $250,000. he was running in, however, to a very hard core obstruction deal saying we're not going forward with that if you don't include the millionaires and billionaire
